the society. it then becomes the coin toss. do we like mr. romney? we like mr. obama? do we prefer republicans to democrats? is the system cannot be debated, because everybody agrees the two parties will there be focused elsewhere on things like whether you can have a gun in the back of your truck or whether you do or do not approve of gay marriage, or a whole host of other issues whose importance i am not disputing, but issues get us away from this thorny problem of how economics and politics are articulate and there's a desire to sit in a society that that simply be ruled out of order. >> the five corporations that dominate what people in this country see here and read have perfected the art of propaganda in manufacturing consent while simultaneously criticizing dissent. but i want you to talk about the very origin of this, which could be traced to the much revered and in my view, much overrated founding fathers of any political rally. people talk about them in hushed tones. but let's hear what they have to say about these kinds of issues. james madison, who wrote the federalist papers, prin
of whom i met three, and mrs. romney, whom i met, and they are an ordinary american family. they are just -- imagine five boys running around at the age of 6, and that makes you very ordinary. he didn't kill any of them, that's a start. [laughter] i think that will come across, and all of the efforts to bring up the money and the house and the horse and all of that stuff, i don't think americans care if it comes across one on one how much money. nelson rockefeller won in new york again and again and again and again and again, and his fortune dwarf that. there are a lot of rich democrats that this issue doesn't come up. kerry did not lose because he married the heinz fortune. he lost because he was not particularly approachable. [laughter] i think that what you're concerned about is right to be concern the about, but i think as people get to know the governor, and especially the governor in the context of the family, they will believe he is, in fact, sharing their values. if not their pain of financial necessary sigh, their values. i'm confident about that actually. yes, sir? >> thank you

as far as foreign affairs, which i don't know anything much about. but i think mr. romney has the ability of leading a company, you know. there is a difference in a manager and staff for so therefore he has the ability to lead companies but i think it takes a special person to lead the country, and i want to hear how he plans to do that, and i do want both candidates to be specific. i like to have things spelled out for me. >> host: we have a poll the facebook page asking whether you plan to watch the presidential debate tomorrow night. so far the yes's are a strong majority. 81% of people say they plan to tune in. you can find that on the c-span facebook page. atlanta georgia, republican line. >> caller: how are you doing this morning? i'm calling to say yes i'm going to watch the debate. i sent a question to mitt romney i wanted him to ask president obama about why mr. obama said there was a black man in st. louis in 2009 and his name was kenneth and he was a cancer survivor selling trinkets at town hall meeting to try to pay his bills. you can find it all online, meeting of a black man

questions. >> moderator: mr. president. obama: first of all, i think it is important for governor romney to present his plan he says only affect folks in the future. in the essence of the plan as he would turn medicare into a voucher program. it is called premiums support, but it's understood to be a voucher program. his running mate -- >> moderator: don't support that? obama: i don't. and then explain why. romney: that's for future people, not current retirees. obama: if you are 54 or 55 come you might want to listen because this will affect you. the idea originally presented by congressman ryan, your running mate, is that we would get a voucher to seniors and they could go out in the private marketplace and buy their own health insurance. the problem is that because the voucher would necessarily keep up with health care inflation, it was estimated this would cost the average senior about $6000 a year. now in fairness, what governor romney has now said as he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. but there's still a problem because what happens is those insurance companies are
will save us. final question, mr. forbes, what is your enthusiasm level about the mitt romney campaign? >> i think he would be a good president and precisely because he knows what it takes to get real things done. he demonstrated the crisis manager. and so, here's my views on monetary policy it because the way i do for entitlement reform and the like, health care, not yet. this is why we get some good candidates in congress. over the years it

[laughter] >> thank you for coming. it is a great speech. not if israel wanted attack the reactors, five years down the road what kind of protracted conflict? it could take out the reactor but not the knowledge base, where the material that is their? idahoans strike could stop that. it seems once the cat is out of the baguette is out. >> issued not be the message of israel do saying we're not allowing iran to become nuclear. after i romney would find another country i hear from the muslim brotherhood to dislike the neighbors following the footsteps of i
from santa fe. joe, from cincinnati, a republican. >> caller: good morning, mr. johnson, good to hear we still have some red-bleed paid trottic americans improve was going to vote for mitt romney but i'd like to know what would you do if you actually made it to the seat? would you consider repealing that affirmative action bill and the civil rights bill? from what i'm seeing right now, it seems like it's just this backlash against the white community like obama has a war against white heritage of something. i don't understand it. >> host: gary johnson. >> guest: well, we should not discriminate, and i think government policies in the past have gotten us to a point where i really don't see that discrimination. so, i'm going to sign on to legislation repealing affirmative action because i think we have moved beyond that. but i'll just offer up a prediction again. obama, romney, we're going find ourselves with a heightened police state, find ourselves with continued military interventions that are going to result? we bomb iran, we're going to find ourselves with 100 million enemies to th
